I originally reported this issue here: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5512258 however it was fraudulently closed by Lieutenant Jeff Emmitt in order to sweep the issue under the rug, and then the site automatically archived it making it impossible for me to re-open or comment on the issue. Therefore I have to re-submit the same issue all over again (and will probably have to do this several more times since APD will probably just keep fake-closing it like they do all our other requests on this site):
constantly barking dog, german shepard left abandoned in back yard almost 24 hours a day every day. dog barks loudly at random times throughout day and night, including at odd hours of the night like 3 am. This morning has been barking sporadically since around 9 am (it is now 11:38 AM). This has happened so many times this past year that I've honestly lost count of how many nights of sleep ive lost because of this barking dog. Countless complaints made to the useless Alameda Animal Services but the animal control officer refuses to take action and wont accept video recordings of barking as proof. in other words, the dog has to be b arking at the exact moment that animal control officer arrives. if they stop for even 5 minutes, if the officer was there during that time they will write it off and not do anything about it. because of alameda's worthless and corrupt animal services protocol to refuse to accept video evidence of barking (which is normally accepted in virtually every other city in the us), the degenerate and irresponsible owner of this dog has been permitted to neglect their animal and cause a nuisance to the neighborhood by having it bark every day with total impunity for over a year straight.
As of Saturday, June 30th, 2019, the problem is still not resolved. APD and animal services have done absolutely nothing to abate the problem.
